Instance Method

setPlaceholder(_:)

Sets the text field’s placeholder.

Declaration

func setPlaceholder(_ placeholder: String?)

Discussion

Use placeholders to describe the text field’s expected content to the user. An empty text field displays the placeholder, and any entered text hides the placeholder. The system automatically formats the placeholder, making it obvious that it’s not a valid text entry.
